Elizabeth Claire's E-News

October 2009 Elizabeth Claire's E-News

Sep 20, 2009 - 0 comments

It's a busy time at schools, as well as here at Easy English NEWS and Eardley Publications.

I was pretty thrilled last month, after the first Elizabeth Claire's E-News went out, to hear from people I hadn't heard from in a long time: friends, colleagues, old customers, former students. Wow! I was overwhelmed and tried to answer all personally . . . but ran out of time. So if I missed greeting you and thanking you for your comments and well wishes, please know that I do appreciate hearing from you and from new subscribers, too. I don't want to be just "talking to flap my gums" (er, fingers) but want to deliver something of value each month in this newsletter, without the constraints that the format of a newspaper or book demands.

I want to hear from you, too. Let me know what's working in your classes, who your new students are, what challenges you face this year. I'll read them all, as I like to be informed about school situations. Are your budgets cut? Program reduced? More students than ever? Students coming from new places? Special challenges? I spend a lot of my time at a computer, researching and writing, and don't get into many schools, so you can be my resource for keeping in touch with today's realities in different parts of the country.

September 2009 Elizabeth Claire's E-News

Aug 28, 2009 - 0 comments

Easy English NEWS will be shipped from New Jersey on August 24, and delivered to subscribers on the east coast by August 26, and reach the west coast by September 1st.

September's feature article is Wash Your Hands! tips on preventing the spread of the swine flu.

The news about swine flu, its spread, treatment, vaccines, and effects will change rapidly during the next few weeks. It's hard to bring you current news when the printer's deadline is August 14, but you won't be reading the paper with your classes until mid-September.

You will find information prepared for you in easy English posted at ElizabethClaire.com starting September 15th so you and your class can keep up to date on this developing story.

U.S. government experts and the World Health Organization urge vaccination for many groups of vulnerable people. They may make vaccination mandatory for school age children and others.

Teachers who want to learn about another side of vaccination can go tohttp://www.organicconsumers.org/articles/article_18884.cfm to see Dr. Gary Null's video Vaccine Nation.
